Because I went there and the teachers were very helpful and willing to work with you in anyway.
I go to Betsy Layne right now and I'm in the seventh grade I think that it is awesome there are alot of teachers that are willing to help you but also let you have fun. There are a couple of teacher's I could outsmart in the school, but you got that at every school. I am proud to go here not only because of being the #1 middle school in the county and having very good test scores but because our sports are also very good.
There are a few good teachers, but then there are some that do not know anything about what they are teaching. Discipline is quite a problem there, but they just got a new principal so hopefully things will get better. Oh, and do not even get me started on that nasty lunchroom food.
I took my child out of Betsy Layne and now drive 30 minutes one way to take him to a better school. I don't recommend Betsy Layne at all! They are a few good teacher, but that's it.
I have two kids that go here, they are very smart and i find that they have learned alot at this school.
This is the worst school I have ever been to in my life. Discipline is the biggest problem this school has. As a former student, I know. Parents, and students alike, if you ever, plan on attending this school, do not do it.
this is a school with an excellent environment for learning. the athletics is great and i am proud that my child attends this school.
Betsy Layne is a good school to go to, I loved it when I went until I moved. There is a lot of kids there...and it is a very sociable environment.
